Mr. Pierre Bergé is pleased to announce that the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent will present an exhibition devoted to an important new body of work created by world-renowned artist David Hockney on his iPhone and iPad. This will be the artist’s first major exhibition in Paris in more than a decade. David Hockney: Fleurs Fraîches will open at the Fondation located at 5, avenue Marceau, Paris on the 20th of October 2010, and will be on view through the 30th of January 2011.
David Hockney: Fleurs Fraîches is curated by cultural historian and freelance curator Charlie Scheips. The exhibition is designed by New York-based architect Ali Tayar who has created an installation inspired in part by Hockney’s studio in Yorkshire, England. Another feature of the exhibition is Tayar’s modernist take on the neo-classical French
banquette which will allow visitors to sit and view both of the two gallery installations.
